Granny's Surprises In The Mail


video


I went to visit Granny today and she was still nervous about learning her new sewing machine. My Aunt & Uncle were there filling bobbins for her. Did I tell you that my uncle Joe found a cabinet for the new sewing machine to go in? Granny likes it a lot better. I took her some surprises that came in the mail from Kim and Diane. They have both bought quilts from Granny. The video shows how excited she was as she opened this. As you can hear she doesn't understand about all of the people I know (in blogland). Granny is on her third quilt since changing sewing machines. Change is very hard for Granny but she is doing good with my Aunt Carol's help. Diane had sent her money for 2 quilts in with a package that her and Kim fixed for Granny. I had also sold 2 more of her quilts locally so Granny was overwhelmed. As you can hear on the video my dad had brought Granny lunch. Granny is on a schedule. She thinks that she has to eat between 11:00- 11:30. If she doesn't she thinks something is wrong. Oh how I wish I could be that disciplined. My cousin Nancy came in before I left. She is so good to Granny. After Granny eats lunch she always has something sweet. The chocolates that were in the package are perfect! Then Granny takes her pills with a little bit of coke. When I was leaving, Nancy was pouring Granny's coke. I know after we all left Granny was back on that sewing machine sewing away. Thank you to Diane & Kim for the package. You made Granny's day!

* YOU HAVE GOT TO GO AND READ THIS POST ABOUT GRANNY. SO PRECIOUS! Go to Marlene's blog. She bought a quilt from Granny and she describes perfectly. Thank you Marlene.

That's Grannny! She is the same no matter what is going on! I loved the idea of the "money jar" too.
I also want to note that there are some really good people out there who are honoring Granny. It brings tears to my eyes.

Val, Thank you so much for sharing Granny. That video is priceless and just made my day. I have a package I am getting together for Granny for her birthday and can't wait for her to get it. My quilt I bought is precious and we have used it everyday since getting it.
Thanks.
